Access to the Chinese environmental market

The global environmental technology and services market is worth $5.4trillion, and China is well on the way to becoming the biggest country market, with $473billion committed to environmental protection over the next four years.

We believe the UK environmental industry should be a major player in the Chinese market. To support this, we have negotiated a formal Memorandum of Understanding with the Chinese Society for Environmental Sciences (CSES), a body which is part of the Chinese Ministry of the Environment.

This MoU sets up a process for EIC members to engage directly with senior Chinese officials to develop commercial opportunities to provide environmental technologies and services in China. As part of this process EIC has hosted senior CSES officials on visits to the UK and introduced them to EIC member companies with an interest in the Chinese market – some of these members are now doing business in China.
